have traders on the new york stock exchange, the cme group, and the imex. we start with crude, perhaps iraq scaling down its production. we got iran doing their naval exercises again, and perhaps a little bit of optimism that washington will finally get it done, but either way, look at it, hoil of to the upside. >> yeah, i think all the reasons mentioned are partly why we're up higher today. i also think this is just a technical rally. we broke out above key resistance levels. i think we can trade up to 92 #.09, the next level up. there's a report of a terrorist threat thwarted in united arab emirates, and we have early indications inter next crude oil number is a draw. bullish as well. ashlie williams thank -- ashley: thank you. firstly, doreen, what happened? well, we are negative again, but wiped most of the losses on the day on a very quiet day. >> very, vie quiet. as you pointed out, ashley, retailers what everybody's looking at because it's a predicter and indication of how consumers feel, and gdp in 2013, you know, consumers are 70% of the number, and it doesn't really, the numb

, the financial crisis in europe is providing an opportunity for china. earlier this year, we heard from new york times reporter liz alderman on a chinese shipping company that is making waves in greece. > > how successful has this shipping company, known as cosco, been so far in greece? > > it's an interesting story. this chinese basically state- run shipping company came in here about three years ago in a $500 million deal that ever since then has been a model for the country, because what they did is they bought half of piraeus port, which is an ancient port in greece and one of the most important ports in the southern mediterranean. what they did was they basically took an operation that had been effectively lagging under greek ownership and completely turned it around. > > have the the greek people been welcoming of this? the chinese work way is much different from the european way, let's say. > > the chinese have an extremely efficient working practice. as one spokesman there put it to me, they basically run their business by showing that they work 24/7, that has actually rung alarm bells,

griffeth here at new york stock exchange. maria will be along in a few minutes. the markets giving washington the benefit of the doubt so far today. we've had no real progress to speak of on the fiscal cliff. the president did speak publicly about it today. but we haven't exactly taken any step backwards either on wall street as far as the major averages go. we have had more special dividends declared, which we'll get to. first, get you caught up on the markets. kind of a meandering day. a few economic bits of data out today. other than that, not a lot going on as far as economic data go. we're all just waiting to see that white puff of smoke come out of washington and nothing yet so far. the dow virtually unchanged right now at 12,966. the nasdaq is down seven points right now. we'll talk with seema mody about that. and the s&p 500 index at this hour is down 1.80 in change at 1407. in today's "closing bell" exchange, we go over what is going on as we head toward the end of the year. seema mody is at the nasdaq today. jeff, what do you make of what's going on in washington? i'm mos
an exchange like the nasdaq or the new york stock exchange tries to make any kind of merger or acquisition, it's usually rejected lately. >> well, i think what we've looked at is bringing together canada's financial markets under one institution so we can really have a very strong market. now, there are competitors. we have alternative trading systems that are owned and operated by other entities, and a low barrier to entry for new organizations to come to canada. but the reality is that we think we offer the most comprehensive services. david: let's talk about how our regulations might affect your companies. dodd-frank is going to have worldwide implications. >> well, dodd-frank's really important to us. in fact, i've spent personally a lot of time in washington over the last year as dodd-frank -- david: did they accept your input? >> for sure. the cftc, in particular. it impacts us in important ways because as our institutions execute interest rate swaps, they're going to have to be bilaterally cleared. or multilaterally cleared oz opposed to -- as opposed to bilaterally. and that's importan
in the air. atlanta will have delays. as the system moves east on the weekend, even new york and boston will have delays from this storm. and then we'll talk about the west when we get back with the rest of the weather. it is a messy next couple of days. >> real sloppy. sam, thanks very much. >>> we'll get the latest on that fiscal cliff. down to 12 days before everyone's taxes go up and every government program is cut. and that is a little more likely this morning, with private talks frozen and both sides blaming each other for the breakdown. abc's jonathan karl has all this from washington. all of the focus on speaker john boehner's fallback plan, what he is calling plan "b." >> reporter: that's right, george. talks have got son low, i would say this is the low point, that boehner is moving ahead with the backup plan that the president so opposes, he says he will veto. under plan "b" most of the tax cuts will be extended for those making over $1 million. for those over $1 million, the tax rates would go up. this could do nothing to address the issues. like spending cuts and the debt c
revolt since mubarak was pushed out of power. "the new york times" also has another fascinating story. john boehner gained strong backing of the house gop. they actually say that the speaker's more powerful today than he has been since he became speaker two years ago. >> well, that's exactly the opposite of what we were discussing on the set yesterday with matt lewis. >> yeah. i guess one question is, is that story there for a purpose, which is to make him appear stronger, and also, is he strong in relation to the offer that's on the table, which is an offer that does not reflect compromise yet? >> well, he is strong, i think, as long as he's not seen as bowing down and caving in to the president. i will tell you, there are conservatives dair a s -- erick who is trying to get him removed as speaker, saying they only need 16 votes to drive john boehner out of time. >> that's kind of my point. >> a situation described as very fluid. >> how many degrees of freedom does he have from where he is now and who's holding the pen when they sign those letters? >> yeah, i don't think he's got a l
office depot. staples and office depot do business in new york. another reason why the stock's outperforming. lately there have been whispers and you go on the web, you google this thing and you're going to see it. i google it. i don't want to be a part of it but possible merger between office depot and office max. it's true that office depot and staples tried to merge in the mid '90s. justice department nixed that one. but the dynamics of the office supply system has changed a lot since the rise of the internet. i think it's more likely a deal would be allowed to happen in this base. staples buying office depot was the number one player by the number two. ixnay on that. the other merger number two player combining with the number three. justice is always easier on those. i never like to invest on takeover speculation. but there's no doubt office max would go higher if it happened to catch a bid. after this run office max is still cheaper than office depot or staples on an enterprise value basis. not recommending this on a takeover basis. here's the bottom line. i wouldn't re
to figure out things mechanically. jack was a huge new york giants fan. he looked up to victor cruz. senators from connecticut calling for a ban on assault weapons. president obama saying last night at a memorial service, more needs to be done to protect our children. classes set to resume tomorrow in new towns other schools. no word on when the elementary will go back to school. those are your headlines. melissa: so heartbreaking. the companies board discusses two competing buyout proposals. charlie gasparino joins us with the latest on this. the board meeting, began at 8:00 a.m. charlie: it is still going on. virtue, they are kind of unclear. they claimed it is all cash. we will get into some of the controversies of that in a minute. my capital executives have spent the last week, the key prime piece of real estate there, they were shopping all week. just give me one second and we will explain what it means. a major knight investor tells us the firm could stay independent. the real question is, why do we care so much about this story. if you buy something through a td ameritrade o
to tell you, it's still the highest price for gas ever at this time of year. new york still the highest in the continental u.s., 3.78 in new york, that's the average and missouri the lowest, $3.01 a share and missouri is the only city, only place, rather, where we found major cities with the average price under $3. again, the star is st. louis, at 298. let's get back to apple, losing its cool, maybe. and mark is still with us, the editor in chief of laptop magazine. all right. i want to talk about-- let's see, this is the microsoft surface tablet, all right. >> yes. stuart: now, is this a threat to apple's dominance of the tablet market and apple's dominance of cool? do you like this thing? >> in the short-term i don't think it's a threat, but there are some things that surface has especially for workers that the ipad doesn't, one of the things off the bat you'll notice this has a smart cover, sort of like the ipad, but this one has a deboard built in and you see on the back, this little kick stand in the design, lets you prop it it up. lets you use it as a mini laptop. stuart: do you g

that don't live in new york, here is look at the tabloids this morning. the "new york post," off the fiscal cliff. this fall is really going to hurt. ben white of morning money, dennis, said an excuse to get a bic can keeney on the cover. >> relatively slow news day. what geithner did yesterday is almost as if he is strapping a damsel in distress to the tracks and saying the stakes are rising higher. the markets are taking all this tension, all this sort of -- these things at stake to really make the point perhaps that you have to have those stakes really high for people actually to get a deal. >> on "fast" last night when that letter crossed in the green rooms, we were chatting, we said this sounds like a ploy on the part of the treasury to actually get people to start moving. obviously, there wasn't a market selloff, did have the stumbling blocks and traders on friday said almost better if we did see the markets pull back more to crystallize what this could mean for the u.s. economy to members of congress. we didn't see that. it is a numbers game though in terms of what will happen. we kn
to the floor. new york stock exchange. lauren is there watching it. any indication from the investors and traders about a deal? are they telling you if they have an inside scoop? >> they do not have an inside scoop, but there's con play sen sigh, and stocks stuck in the range, down half a percent for the broader market, down for five days in a row waiting, two hours from now, to hear somebody in washington say something about fiscal cliff, and then we'll move on that news, but traders are saying if we get a deal done, we'll see the market take off. we have not seen a santa claus rally this december, unfortunately, and, in fact, the nasdaq lower. stocks lower, by the way. here's the new york stock exchange, three stocks trading down for every one trading up. another thing trading up a the vix index. it's 20.18. the vix has traded below the two decade average, and that's not happened this month. we broke that trend. we have an uptick in the vix now. adam, back to you. adam: the question of the day, are we closing in on the deadline and potential plan to avert the fiscal cliff, about thi
's go to nicole petallides at new york stock exchange. >> the market under pressure hovering around 13,000 where we're sitting right now. othello's of the day. we have recouped some of the losses but we're still down over 100 points. every single component is a red. johnson & johnson. pfizer. aluminum. and materials. jpmorgan that hit a 52 week high it is now a loser. with the vix index look at the levels the volatility index it is a showing and the indication there is nervousness with washington. what will lawmakers do with a decision? this is the highest point* of a one-year term. the highest point* is from july. this is the environment right now. it is a holiday but we will watch each sector under pressure. lori: more news then redo this time. tracy: fiscal clef finger-pointing underway in washington. harry reid says they're headed over the cliff. it is really about senator harry reid and mitch mcconnell? >> to develop the political staring contest democrats say republicans need to move and around rego. the president arrived this morning from hawaii and so with the top democrats and
. the quality of life is certainly different. in new york, where i live, $250,000 is peanuts compared to living in a different state. you could have a huge house. if you are in new york, you will probably get an apartment. i see democrats, especially the president, as unwilling to negotiate with each other. my hope and prayer is that the country comes out strong by january 1 with extended tax breaks. >> here is a quick look at the tax increases, this is from " washington journal." "changes -- this is from "the washington journal." "many of these are expected to revert to clinton era levels." >> starting out the sunday shows, president obama with an interview on "meet the press." and their efforts in congress. here is what he had to say. [video clip] >> i am confident that we will see an agreement in the next 48 hours. if that does not happen, democrats in the senate will put a bill on the floor of the senate and republicans will have to decide whether or not they will block it, meaning that middle-class taxes go up. i do not think that they would want to do that, politically, but they may wind
